1 Peel Street

Kensington, London
Bed & Breakfast

All private and peaceful up under the eaves of this charming house in Kensington - and just a stroll from wine bars and tapas


1 room


Rooms sleep 2


Pretty, gabled and surprisingly quiet with central London on your doorstep. Fascinating old maps, photos from Susie’s world travels, interesting books and objets d’art all create an unusual and elegant feel. The top floor is all yours: the bedroom is full of character, framed by the slanting angles of the roof and soothingly decorated in neutral shades. Breakfast is at a table overlooking the patio or downstairs in the elegant dining room: organic bread, pastries, fruit and excellent coffee. Just a stroll to good tapas, wine bars, Hyde Park and Notting Hill. Hop on a bus or tube to explore further. Guests love it here.

We’ve just had a lovely weekend at Peel Street. The host was very welcoming and nice to chat to. She was accommodating with check in/ out and breakfast times. You are very much part of the owners house when you stay. There was no lock on our bedroom door, which may concern some, but we were fine with this. Breakfast was lovely with produce from the local deli, and we got to try something new. Location for us was perfect, we walked to and from Paddington station, to Notting Hill, to The Royal Albert Hall all within 30 mins (strolling). Easy access to Kensington gardens. Great value for money.

We had a most comfortable and enjoyable stay in this charming house with the delightful hostess. It is centrally placed and yet totally quiet and an ideal base for a London visit.

Christopher, Badminton

1 Peel Street is a lovely place to stay. Susan has a beautiful home and the room with bathroom next door is lovely. It is in a fabulous location and was great for a night at the Proms in Hyde Park. The breakfast was great and Susan is an attentive and interesting host. Would highly recommend this B&B.

S, Suffolk

This is the second time we stayed here - the last time was in 2014. The location is perfect and Susie is a wonderful host. The breakfast is very nice - juice, good bread and jam, fresh fruit, delicious yoghurt, and a choice of cereals. The Nespresso coffee is a great start to the day! We recommended this B and B to several people and we plan on visiting again next time we stay in London which we hope is very soon!

Thomas, Buffalo, ny

Lovely B&B/house x in Kensington very close to Kensington High Street run by a smart lady. The room is lovely & it was great to chat to Susan. The only thing we would recommend is to have more choices for breakfast

Emmanuelle, London

We really enjoyed our stay at 1 Peel Street. The room,with our own shower room, was so comfortable and Susie was a delightful host. The house is a little gem in a lovely area, quiet yet well placed for all the sights and galleries we wanted to visit.

Peter, Reading

We had a lovely stay at 1 Peel Street. The room was really comfortable with tea making facilities and private shower. Breakfast was delicious with fresh fruit, cereals, juice and toast. Susie was a great host and made us feel very comfortable. It's a great location to stay with restaurants and pubs within walking distance. We look forward to staying again.

Sally-anne, Stourbridge

It was wonderful! Completely lives up to the description--Susie's home is clean and comfortable with complete privacy for guests and a brand new, modern bathroom. It is a short walk to Kensington Palace and Hyde Park, an even shorter walk to the underground for a very quick ride to the heart of London and everything we could hope to do. Breakfast is delicious and healthful to fuel a very active day in the city. Susie is a lovely and gracious hostess with excellent advice on getting about London and amazing stories to tell about the fascinating décor and history of her home.

Jill, Modesto

Had a wonderful stay at 1 Peel Street. Susan is a wonderful host and makes you feel very welcome. The bedroom is lovely and has everything you need. Breakfast was a perfect start to the day. The property is in a great spot, very convenient for public transport. We visited the Natural History Museum and it was an easy bus journey. Would highly recommend.

Sandy, Lancaster

My family and I have stayed at 1 Peel Street on several occasions and have always found Mrs Laws to be a cheery and most helpful host. Her home is a delight with everything provided for in a stylish manor and it is a pleasure to spend time there. The location is ideal for those visiting London with good connections to the centre whilst maintaining a tranquil, village atmosphere close to Kensington gardens. There's also lots of choice in quality restaurants and wine bars within easy walking distance.

Colin, Carlisle

Suzie made us so welcome and her hospitality was very thoughtful and made one feel special. Everything provided was perfect and yet relaxed.

Amanda, Southampton

My sister and I were in London for a very special party and Susie's warm hospitality provided the icing on the cake. The house is beautiful and comfortable; cosy and full of light even on a miserable winter's day. The breakfast was one of the most healthy and delicious I've ever eaten. Perfectly restorative after the over indulgence of the night before. I really cannot avoid superlatives as this was the perfect bed and breakfast. Susie is welcoming, considerate and a great conversationalist. I will definitely be back and will recommend to all my friends and family.

Zoe, Petersfield

Excellent location for West London...warm welcome and interesting conversation...will definitely return.

Gill, Ripon, north yorkshire

Super place to stay. Susan was very welcoming and made our weekend stay in London a real pleasure. Easy access to anywhere in London - tube easy walking distance and taxis frequent on the nearby (but not annoyingly near) main road. Several very good restaurants/wine bars in walking distance too.

Deborah, Worcester

Great location. The ensuite room was perfect. Enjoyable breakfast in a beautiful setting. Susan is a very gracious host. Helpful with suggestions for sites to see and how to get about. Other family has stayed here in the past and we will certainly recommend to friends. Excellent.

Ruth, Buffalo, ny

Excellent place to stay ,Susan is a lovely host .The bedroom is very comfortable and on the top floor so very quiet ,breakfast was very healthy ,thank you for a great stay we would definitely return .

Debbie, Chelmsford

This is an absolutely delightful place to stay. The house is exactly as described and Trevor and Susie are perfect hosts. The bedroom is light and peaceful and a book lover's paradise. A jar of yellow roses added a welcoming touch. The bed is comfortable and the whole atmosphere conducive to a good night's sleep. Breakfasts are a delicious treat and the location is excellent.


A very short walk from the tube, this is a delightful little bolt hole. Susan and Trevor are very welcoming hosts. Very comfy bed and lovely breakfast in relaxing surroundings. I would highy recommend this cosy B and B to couples who are tired of overpaying for so-so hotels in the city.


Difficult to fault this. My wife and I had a perfectly good stay here, with no complaints whatsoever. The Laws have a lovely London town house, beautifully appointed and immaculately kept, and made us most welcome. Five minutes-walk to the London Underground and buses, and lots of interesting shops and restaurants nearby. Booking through Alistair Sawday's we as always have high expectations. We were not disappointed.


A great base for seeing the sights of London. Easy to get to and from with a tube station very close by. Tranquil room, very relaxing. Lovely hosts and breakfast.
